Coconut Chutney (Date and Sesame version)


Here’s another coconut chutney version. Coconut chutney is really very much like hummus in terms of how you flavour it. Add whatever ingredients you like, whip it all together and you have a nice accompaniment for snacks.

I do make coconut chutneys quite often. And if you haven’t had any coconut chutney yet, you should try it. It’s good healthy raw food which is also very tasty!

This one is a slightly sweeter version.


½ fresh coconut meat, finely sliced
½ tablespoon of tamarind pulp (separate the seeds by mixing with a little water)
4-5 stems fresh mint chopped
4-5 large dates (or more if you like!)
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
¼ teaspoon salt
2-3 green/red chillies (optional)
Juice from ½ lime (optional)
40 ml water

  • Place all the ingredients in a blender and grind to a smooth consistency.
  • Add more water as needed to make a thick paste.

Have this with poppadums; they’re great!


  1. Hi Lovliebutterfly, your blog and the receipes are really great! I checked your personal website, i'm amazed. Mindblowing creation!!! wow, such a marvellous work!


  2. Coconuts are difficult to find here, but I would totally order this in a restaurant, I tell you...

  3. What a great idea! I need to try this!

  4. chaya: thanks for your nice comments. You're most welcomed to try the recipes! :)

    alice: I know some people use dessicated coconut (or coconut flakes) to make chutney. Dessicated coconut might be easier to find. Follow the same procedure and it should work. I have never tried it myself but I would think the only difference would be slightly in the taste.

    avery yale kamila: coconut chutney can be used in so many ways. And it is so healthy too!


Your comments make my heart flutter even if you are just saying hi. Thank you for visiting Veganlovlie! :)
